Georgia is ready to increase our contribution to common security, said the Prime Minister of Georgia, while delivering speech at the General Debate of the 77th United Nations General Assembly.
“As the conflict in Ukraine has shown, the wider Black Sea Security is at the forefront of the Euro-Atlantic Security agenda, and Georgia, as an indivisible part of the regional architecture, is ready to increase our contribution to common security.
As we know well, security brings stability, and stability brings predictability. Predictability is a crucial precondition for sustainable economic development. The more predictable the Black Sea region becomes, the more we can unlock its economic potential for the benefit of our people and the global economy.
For that reason, we are developing strategic transport corridors connecting Asia with Europe. Georgia participates in several international initiatives and infrastructure projects with our European colleagues to improve connectivity and facilitate reliable and efficient commerce across the Black Sea.
Despite the complex situation in our region, we spare no effort to foster rapprochement between our neighbors. We have already had success stories, including the safe return of 15 Armenian detainees to their homeland in exchange for maps of mined territories to Azerbaijan”, - said Irakli Garibashvili.
